This frame displays 169 prehistoric-fossilised teeth of otodus Obliquus shark, an extinct mackerel shark, larger than todays modern Gt.whites. A top predator from the Cretaceous oceans which now raised up are phosphate deposits of central Morocco, North Africa. The Fossil Store designed and selected only quality fossil shark teeth for the unique arrangement. A perfect gift for any avid palaeotological collector or enthusiast.
The fossil sharks teeth date from the Phosphate deposits of oulad abdoun basin, Ben Guerir, Morocco. Cenozoic era, early Palaeogene period, Palaeocene to Eocene, around 66 to 50 million years.
The Otodus obliquus was a very large Macro-predatory shark with the largest recorded tooth measuring 10.4 cm in length. With each discovery, we are able to determine more about these powerful sharks which roamed the prehistoric seas of the Cenozoic era. Otodus was a fearsome predatory shark growing to a maximum length of 39 feet. Their prey being smaller marine mammals including smaller sharks. Scientist and palaeontologists theorise the Otodus obliquus ancestry connects to that of the great Megalodon from the Miocene era, evolving for around 30,000,000 to 40,000,000 years and now down we can enjoy the modern Great white sharks. This is the lineage of Carcharocles as we understand it today.
